from John Wann (Royal Holloway)

So many of us at Royal Holloway either knew Jon or had interacted with Jon at some stage. He has not only made a great contribution to science in our area, but was an inspiration to early career researchers (and even those of us well beyond that stage).  His remarkable career showed what can be attained with focus and initiative.  We are saddened by his loss, and I post this message on behalf of all the staff in Psychology, Royal Holloway, Univ of London  (John Wann, Head of Dept, RHUL).
